Mornings can be rough, especially when you have kids and want to sleep in a little longer than when they rise. Two out of three of my kids sleep in to a normal hour, but my youngest son, Cash, wakes up unreasonably every most mornings, and HUNGRY. He climbs into my bed and repeats eat, eat, eeeeaaatttt! until my husband or I shuffle into the kitchen to give him a snack or breakfast.

I recently realized that if I have something prepared for him ahead of time then my mornings could go a lot smoother. That’s when I became a fan of the overnight oats trend that I heard so much about. Overnight oatmeal is so simple, you just combine the ingredients the night before and wake up to a delicious smelling kitchen and oatmeal that just needs to be stirred and is ready to go for early risers!

Overnight Coconut Oatmeal with Seasonal Fruit Ingredients

Today I’m excited to share with you my overnight coconut oatmeal with seasonal fruit recipe. I always have ZICO coconut water on hand because it has just one ingredient: 100% Natural Coconut Water with No sugar added.  I use it in my smoothies and my husband likes to drink it by itself (since it is one of the few coconut waters that has no sugar added, is not from concentrate and is 100% coconut water), and I’ve learned it makes a great addition to oatmeal as well. The coconut water adds a subtle coconut flavor, pairs wonderfully with seasonal fruit toppings, and adds some electrolytes and potassium to the dish.

Overnight Coconut Oatmeal with Seasonal Fruit Recipe

Overnight Coconut Oatmeal with Seasonal Fruit Recipe


  • nonstick cooking spray or crockpot liner or casserole dish that fits inside your crockpot
  • 1 C steel cut oats
  • 16.9 oz ZICO natural coconut water
  • 2 C milk (can be dairy milk, coconut milk or other milk of choice)
  • 1-2 T sugar, optional
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 t vanilla
  • Topping Ideas: pomegranates, kiwis, seasonal fruit, milk, honey, coconut shavings


  1. First spray your crockpot with nonstick spray, or line crockpot with a crockpot bag liner, or place a baking dish that fits inside the crockpot (like a pyrex) and fill crockpot with water to about 1 inch below the dish. This first step is to help ensure that oats don't stick/burn to the sides while cooking.
  2. Combine oats, milk, sugar, salt, vanilla and ZICO natural coconut water into crockpot and give it a stir.
  3. Cook on low for at most 8 hours. If you cook your oats too long the oats are more likely to stick and start browning on the sides.
  4. After the oats are done cooking they may separate a little so give it a good stir, pour into bowls and serve with seasonal fruit and toppings of choice.
  5. Enjoy!

  1. This sounds really good. I’m loving the addition of coconut water to the overnight Oats!

  2. We have been looking for a good coconut water to try. Having grown up drinking fresh coconut water, we miss that a lot here in the states. Will give this brand a shot. Between, overnight oatmeal is a life saver and looking forward to try it with coconut water.

    • This coconut water is my favorite brand because there is nothing weird added and it’s not from coconut… let me know what you think! Enjoy the recipe!

  3. I am into the overnight oats. While I’ve never bought coconut water, I’ve had coconut water straight from the coconut. These flavors work well together. I pinned this so I can remember the recipe.

  4. This looks so simple, I’ve never tried coconut oatmeal – and I’ve never tried hot overnight oats, just the sort you make in the fridge. I’m so tempted!

  5. Overnight Oatmeal has never worked for me, but I am thinking about trying this recipe in my new pressure cooker.

    • I just got an instant pot, let me know if you figure out how to make the recipe in your pressure cooker so I can give it a try too!
